Presentation

Madrid is the main communications hub for the Iberian Peninsula. All the main routes to the rest of Spain and Europe lead out of the city. The region has a modern transport network with airports, trains and roads, which are constantly being renovated and extended.  Madrid has a good road network –mainly motorways– which takes you quickly around the region. This –mostly free– network has six major routes that link Madrid with other Spanish cities. Within the Region of Madrid there are four ring roads around the capital with access from all the motorway routes. These ring roads provide easy access to the population centres in the metropolitan area of Madrid.  Madrid is also the centre of the Spanish railway network, with international, inter-city, high speed and regional services. The Renfe national railway company runs all these rail services, as well as the local lines.  The airport is just 13 kilometres outside the city centre. Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport is Spain's busiest airport, and one of Europe's top five. It is also the main European hub for flights to Latin America.
